Christmas Wish

I know the past years I may have wanted some material thing/presents for Christmas.

This time I just want honest to goodness Peace. Within me, my immediate family, my circle of families, and the rest of the earth :)

If only we could all wish hard enough for the last one, maybe it will come true.

I may still probably want a vacation, but I would definitely skip that just to have my first Christmas wish.

Countdown to less than a month to go before Christmas. Before we get all too busy with the festive season of eating, drinking, shopping and merrymaking, let's take time to reflect on the true meaning of gift giving and the real reason for the this holiday's celebration.

Chasing a Dream

How often do we run after a dream? Should we go after each and every one, or choose the ones that really matter?

We can only do so much, and so it can be very draining if we did push too hard sometimes. Wouldn't it be nice if we knew how we are meant to live our life in such a way that will lead us to a happy balanced lifestyle.

10 Random Things List

Sometimes don't we all just want to be random..? A bit of information here and there, which are seemingly useless and nonsense. Here's mine for today:

- I am getting melancholic now for some reason.

- I am wanting to just take a long break from work.

- I am wishing time stood still, for a while.

- I am craving siopao asado.

- I just remembered Iceberg's Ice Creamery in Greenhills. Memories.

- I am having a bad tummy ache. Must've overeaten dinner.

- I am sleepy, but can't seem to sleep.

- I am wishing.

- I am thinking about the next two weeks.

- I am restless.

If only I can earn $4.7m a year!

A bit of trivia, did you know that incoming Qantas CEO Alan Joyce will be earning $4.7m a year plus plus plus incentives! He is the new head of Australia’s flag carrier, and I am sure he would be inheriting a lot of head ache caused by the current financial crisis, as well as other quality issues that plague the company. I am sure he’s got a whole bunch of big responsibilities that would have come together with that big, fat (excuse my politically incorrect term) paycheck.

Just a bit of a worry

I’ve been trying to convince my boyfriend to change jobs. At the moment his job requires him to wear work boots which are a bit of a concern to me because having to wear protective gear to work means there poses some risks involved with the job or duty. His job pays him really well though, but it doesn’t mean I don’t worry every time he is at work. So much for the feeling of job security. I know I may just be over reacting about this, but I am only a girl in love. Oh how cheesy am I?!

Raising bilingual kids

I am pretty proud about our eldest being able to speak my mother tongue (Filipino). As young as one year old we taught her to speak Tagalo...
